couple weeks ago it was down .5%. >> materials down 20%, energy down 16%. >> correct. again this quarter the sectors that rely on commodities prices are seeing the biggest hit. materials as you said down 20%. certainly be interesting this afternoon to see where alcoa falls. currently they are expected to be down 99% from the year ago quarter. of course, within materials we are seeing metals and mining looking to be down 40%. >> what does this mean for me sitting at home? if you know it, the analysts forecast it, that must be in the market and yet the s&p has rallied over the last few months. when i see a materials report results down 20%, will the stock not fall? >> you're right, there's a disparity wean the markets and what analysts are seeing. we are seeing earnings at a three-year low. this negative 1.2% is the lowest we have seen since third quarter 2009. i think investors have been focusing the last few weeks on the comments of the fed, the ecb, they have not really turned their droex earnings at this point. once we see companies missing estimates and revenue targets, that w

cramer. the other night governor romney talked about creating 4 million jobs by embracing an energy independence for north america. i have the ceo of the largest pipeline builder on my other show "mad money" last night. he said 4 million is reasonable, but the federal government is not being helpful. i know you favor all sort of energy, solar, fantastic. what do you say about the 4 million? >> actually, a say that we need to create more jobs across the board and particularly, highly skilled people to work in the refinery and production areas where we're finding more energy and we have to have a balance, so i'm totally for that. i encourage more a perennisship programs and training in that area. we have a high need for welders and people working in refineries and i'm all for paying for those jobs and looking at other alternative forms of energy and we have to have a balance of both. >> the unemployment rate falling below 8% for the first time since january 2009 and i'm sure the labor department was hearing about that this morning. at the same time, can you tell the american people th

issuance side. jim back to you. >> thank you, rick. check out the latest moves in energy. sharon epperson? >> jim, oil prices are holding pretty steady after the huge gains we saw in the previous session. we have brent crude above $114 a barrel, nymex wti crude about $92 a barrel, and we're talking about three weeks highs here for the brent crude price and nearly the highest price in a week for wti. we're continuing to watch what is happening in terms of the geopolitical situation with u.s. sending military troops to the jordan/syria border and of course tensions between syria and turkey have been escalating. we're also looking at some of the fundamental data, the latest report from opec in their monthly report saying there will be ample supplies through 2013. we'll wait to see what the international energy agency and the u.s. energy information administration have to say in their monthly reports later this week. in terms of the gold price, that $17.60 to $17.65 level has been a key area of support and a lot of traders say there is consolidation here as we've seen a firmer dollar
